A Nigerian Point of Sale (POS) operator has been publicly celebrated for his demonstration of honesty after he reported the sum of ten million naira (N10 million) mistakenly transferred into his account instead of ten thousand naira (N10,000) in Kano State.

It was learnt that he realised that one of his customers wrongly transferred the money into his account.

Kano State Police Command made this known in a statement on Thursday, noting that it took the police three months of investigation to identify the owner of the excess money.

The statement ‘CP Gumel Commends POS Operator For Exhibiting Honesty And Good Conduct,’ reads, “… As the POS Operator reported to the Police that he has realized that one of his customers who is yet to be identified wrongly transferred to his account Ten Million Naira (N10,000,000:00) instead of Ten Thousand Naira (N10,000:00).”

“And it took the Police investigation three (03) months period in identifying the owner of the excess money. After getting all the proofs, CP Gumel casts encomium to both the POS Operator and the Police team from the State CID for the display of honesty, integrity, professionalism and encourages others to follow this rare exemplary track,” the statement added.
